Despite stalking (almost) all the geography threads, I can't seem to find anything for GCSE Geography... which doesn't really help me. As exams are coming up in 2 months, I should finally begin to revise for geo but I'm stumped. I've never actually revised for geography at all so some help with how to structure my notes and some resources would be really appreciated

However, if you feel the same way as I do, we can cry together on this thread and attempt to get our geography lives back on track :P

I'm sitting edexcel specification A and the best way to revise is to buy the book and write notes from it very helpful and full with everything you need to know and it only cost like £3!

Ok thanks
what notes do you make about the various case studies? Is it the costs, benefits and implications of each one and how the economy, social and environmental aspects are affected?

I'm doing Edexcel B too! I've got two revision books, one is called revision notes and goes over everything, the other book is a work book filled with exam questions which I occasionally go through to refresh my memory

I'm sorry it took me so long to reply, it might not matter now. But for each case study it's different, if you want to know exactly what you need to know for each case study, check the specification out:

Completely aware this thread is four years old, but incase anyone is currently looking for the answer I'll answer it anyway.
I did my GCSEs 2 years ago and this is what I did for geography:
- Make mind maps!!
For each topic, make mind maps with sub topics and brief summary notes around them
- Case studies!!
Case studies are so so important, for each case study I made a fact file of the key information, key facts/figures, key players, costs and benefits.
I also made a table where I had each topic/sub topic and wrote which case studies I would use for that particular area
- Notes with diagrams
For theories and processes, I made sure I had notes with annotated diagrams on, the diagrams make it so much easier to understand
